Chelsea predicted XI vs Krasnodar: Frank Lampard’s possible starting line-up with Blues boss set to give fringe players a chance to impress

Midfielders:

Lampard has confirmed that Billy Gilmour will start his first match of the season after being fully fit again after recovering from a knee injury. The Scot picked up the injury in July and has only made one appearance for the Blues this term, coming on as a substitute against Sevilla last week. Partnering Gilmour in midfield will likely be Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, meaning Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante will get a rest out of the side.
